“Celery soup is uniquely delicious, and this celeriac-based version of classic vichyssoise is no exception. Time doesn't include cooling and chilling.”

  1. Heat the oil in a saucepan over a low heat, add the onions, thyme, bay leaf and garlic and cook slowly for 2-3 minutes, until soft but not brown.
  2. Add the potatoes, celeriac and lemon juice to the pan and stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper. Add the stock and bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 30 minutes.
